Today I’ll be reviewing a pink cream blush I picked up from MUA. I’d picked up about 5 blushes from MUA during the sale and have been using them for quite some time now..The shade I’ll be reviewing today is in Bittersweet.
About MUA Perfection Cream Blush
These cream blushers are very versatile and multi-purpose. They can be directly applied to bare skin, layered over foundation or set with the matching matte blushers in the £1 MUA range. You can use blush perfection to highlight your cheekbones, shape your face, build and blend with fingers or a brush to create the colour intensity. The colour effects range from a light pink to warm shade, depending on method of application.
My experience with MUA Perfection Cream Blush in Bittersweet
Packaging: The cream blushes come in rectangular pans with a clear flip lid and with the shade and ingredient list on the rear. I like the compact packaging but the writing on the front looks kinda cheap with the lettering flaking off easily.
Color & Texture: The color is a blue based pink. No shimmer or anything…but texture-wise I found it a tad bit sticky and waxy.
- Pigmentation: This is not too pigmented and can be has to be swiped multiple times to get it to how up well.
- Staying Power: Stays on my cheeks for about 2.5 to 3hrs max.
I’m not impressed with this at all.. After wearing this, my skin tends to look greasy as opposed to dewy and has this sticky feel to it. Usually cream blushes set and give a nice glossy sheen if not a cream to powder formula. But this blush just sit son my skin making it look like I touched them with oily hands.
